<a href="http://www.bellasugar.com/Sunburn-Tips-From-Dermatologist-35025169"></a>I promise you that sunburns are inevitable in your life if you don't wear and reapply sunscreen consistently! It's crucial to protect your skin, rain or shine, beach or mountains. But what happens if you get too much sun exposure and it causes a bad burn? It happens to the best of us, and there are a few things you can do at home to make sure your skin doesn't suffer as a result. <a href="http://www.drjessicawu.com/" target="_blank">Dr. Jessica Wu</a> is a beloved celebrity dermatologist - she can't disclose her clients, obviously - but she is responsible for transforming and maintaining some of the best mugs in Hollywood. During our interview, Dr. Wu told me a few remedies for sunburns that I had never heard before, including one that doubles as a refreshing drink. And which products should you avoid after you get a sunburn? If you deal with acne, you'll want to listen up.

<a href="http://www.popsugar.com/beauty/DIY-Aloe-Vera-Mist-37944938"></a>I'm the queen of SPF; big, floppy hats have become somewhat of an inanimate emotional support animal for me when I know the sun will be out. Therefore, you're probably going to get a major set of side-eye if I see you sporting a red flush to your skin after being in the sun. Sunscreen is a nonnegotiable in my book. That said, two of my colleagues recently battled it out to see who could get the worse sunburn endured a gnarly sunburn during an outdoor shoot, and that inspired me. When it's hot out, nothing's better than a light mist that helps with dry hair, frizzies, and refreshing your makeup. Why not make one that incorporated sunburn-soothing benefits? Off to work I went. Clearly this mist is aloe-vera-based, as aloe vera is the healer of all healers. (Praise be.) I also included a few other ingredients to up the hydration factor, like fractionated coconut oil (it doesn't solidify) and cucumber seed oil, which helps chapped skin and dehydrated hair without making it greasy. Check out how to make your own <a class="sugar-inline-link" title="Latest photos and news for DIY" href="http://www.popsugar.com/DIY" target="_blank">DIY</a> mist and get ready to soothe bad burns.

<a href="http://www.popsugar.com/beauty/Hair-Tapestry-Tutorial-Video-37913974"></a>When we reported on <a href="http://www.popsugar.com/beauty/Hair-Tapestry-Bleach-London-35361271">Bleach London's hair tapestry</a> last year, our Pinterest blew up with repins. Intrigued by the creation, it was time to take matters into our own hands - so weave we did. Hair tapestry is, essentially, needlepoint for your hair. It's a lot of fun, and truth be told, it's therapeutic, too. (They should provide the activity at wellness retreats.) <a href="http://www.popsugar.com/beauty/Natural-Hair-Inspiration-Tutorial-37856231">We paired up again</a> with our cronies at <a href="http://maneaddicts.com/" target="_blank">Mane Addicts, who brought in Michelle Borbolla of <a href="http://www.thegypsybazaar.com/">The Gypsy Bazaar</a>. Michelle mastered the technique and told us a few tricks too, the first being: doing this on your own hair, unless it's down to your navel, is a bit difficult. So grab a friend, or use the ease of a clip-in extension - especially when going with an intricate design. Check out her creation in our latest episode of Beauty Junkie. </a>
<a href="http://www.popsugar.com/beauty/Beauty-Bloggers-Redefining-Beauty-37891925"></a>People turn to beauty bloggers as sources of inspiration for makeup and beauty tutorials, but more importantly, for how to feel beautiful both inside and out. These bloggers show us the power behind the makeup and the importance of confidence.
<a href="http://www.popsugar.com/beauty/Woman-Face-Shaving-Video-37868341"></a>If you read the reason I can't get a date (kidding, duh) <a href="http://www.popsugar.com/beauty/Should-Women-Shave-Face-35580074">my post about why and how I shave my face</a> and thought, "I wish there was a video to accompany it," great news! I am a woman of the people. Truth be told, I was somewhat mortified of the thought about putting this out on the Internet. At least in the post, you have to search to see what I look like - with a video, there's no hiding. Do I really want everyone to know this secret of mine? At first, no, I didn't. Because throughout life, we are told, as women, that we have to be hairless. Yet the means to get rid of our hair is torturous, with the exception of shaving. But noooo! "Women can't shave their faces - it's not feminine!" Blame gender roles for that stigma. Because of that, I felt like I needed to keep this secret. . . . Except I've already written a post about it! And I proudly proclaim to everyone that I do this. Those I tell are either mesmerized, intrigued, or, alternatively, weirded out. (I get it.) The women who aren't ask so many questions. I had women messaging me on Facebook after finding my post (it's a top search result), <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/11/fashion/sometimes-even-women-need-a-smoothly-shaved-face.html?_r=0" target="_blank">The New York Times</a> posted a story about it, and then the Today show got in touch about discussing the topic on the show. All of this made me realize that a lot of women deal with the same issue I had: sensitive skin, with lots of fur on the face and no means of getting rid of it - and wanting desperately to do so. I've turned on many of my close friends to this now, and they don't think twice about giving their face a little scrape once a week. There are plenty of benefits, although I have to stress that I know this isn't for everyone. Some women have had the same reaction that I had when waxing or threading: red bumps all over their chin and cheeks. And my hair is blond, so I know that it doesn't grow back thicker or black. And while it's an old wives' tale that your hair grows back darker and thicker after shaving - that's just how it looks when you shave it - that could be how it looks on your face if your hair is already thick and dark in that area. Just keep that in mind. (And, if you do have darker hair and shave your face, please let me know how you like it!) So, here it is. This is me, people. No turning back, holding my Tinkle razor up high.
<a href="http://www.popsugar.com/beauty/How-Apply-Self-Tanner-Look-Slimmer-Tutorial-37819182"></a>We're privy to a fake tan here at POPSUGAR - in fact, I used to be a professional airbrush tanner. (Trust me, I have stories.) While many think of self-tanning products as either a) just a way to get dark quick or b) a complete mess, there are a few tips that you can implement that will make your tanning fears disappear and will also help sculpt your body, too. First, start with a base tan. I recommend using a foam or mousse, like <a href="http://www.shopstyle.com/action/loadRetailerProductPage?id=459207880&pid=uid9600-3726140-12" target="_blank">St. Tropez</a>, which is relatively difficult to screw up. Apply it in circular motions on clean, dry skin. And make sure it has a cosmetic bronzer, so you can see where you're applying it! Then, start accentuating the rest of your body with an aerosol or spray self-tanner. My favorite is <a href="http://www.shopstyle.com/action/loadRetailerProductPage?id=477918989&pid=uid9600-3726140-12" target="_blank">Infinity Sun's Glow on the Go</a>, because it's alcohol free and has an olive tone to it, so you won't turn orange.
